Truck Driver Hits ‘Bigfoot’ in Alabama

DECATUR, Ala. — A truck driver on Wednesday said he had witnessed “something” resembling a Bigfoot creature being hit by another truck on an Alabama highway.

The man reporting the sighting, known as Smokin Irishman on YouTube, says he was on his next duty after delivering a load of paper to a Kleenex factory in Cherokee, Alabama, when he witnessed the incident on his way to Decatur in 2013.

“I just got my truck after I had been in training. I drove from Milwakee to Alabama,” he said about the trip leading to the daylight encounter. “I went lay down for a little while, so I went to a truck stop. I took a nap, got up, decided to have some lunch, and while I was having lunch I got my next load.”

According to the man, as he drove along the highway, “something” came out of the woods and began running on two legs across the asphalt.

“It was fast, fast, fast. I tell you this, it made that clearing from the woods to the road in about, at most, 10 seconds, that’s how fast it was going,” he recalls.

Then, says the driver, he saw another truck hitting the alleged creature in the hip.

“It turned around, twisted around and it fell on the shoulder. I was thinking ‘what the heck was that thing?'”

Reportedly, curious to see what it was, he drove back to investigate. But, it turns out, that decision didn’t facilitate a better look at the supposed creature.

“It wasn’t dead, but it was mad. You could hear it. He was probably 6 feet tall, loaded with muscle and covered in hair,” said the man. “I have never seen a bear other than at the zoo and on TV, but when I think of a bear, I don’t think of it running on its hind legs, not sprinting and running. This thing was fast and had normal people legs and big long arms,” he added.

In the summer of 2014, footage of a bear running on two legs through busy streets of the Oak Ridge community in New Jersey became an instant internet sensation. It was theorized that the bear had possibly been injured its front legs and forced to use the hind legs.

But the truck driver says he had slept enough hours and that he wasn’t tired, adding that he “wasn’t crazy” and that it still didn’t look like a bear.

“I called my mom and told them about it, she said, ‘why don’t you go back and take a pictire of it?’ I said ’cause I didn’t know what it was, a bear a Bigfoot, all I knew is it was mad and I wasn’t gonna figure out what it was, in case it would rip me in half’. I don’t know if it was Bigfoot or what it was, all I know is it freaked me out. I know there have been a lot of Bigfoot sightings in this area,” he said.

Last year, a truck driver told Cryptozoology News he had seen something that “looked like a Bigfoot” while parked at the TravelCenters of America in the city of Tooele, Utah.

The city of Decatur, located between the counties of of Morgan and Limestone, sits on the banks of the Tennessee River and has a population of 56,000.

    I think that what “Smokin Irishman” might have seen is not a dream because he gives out good details and evidence because a hairy creature that ran that fast with all of that hair, I think that this shows that HE is real. But what we have to do is go back to the origin of who created the myth or fact that “Bigfoot” exists.

    Each individual report has to be examined on it’s own merit. The witness has to be examined. Is he a truthful person ? Is he prone to fantasy ? His/her character should be questioned. What does anyone have to gain from making up a story like this ? I personally believe it’s possible, if not likely, that what he saw was exactly what he believed it to be. Do they exist ? are they real ,… the truth will eventually come to light.

    All rigs come equipped with dash cams just for the reason of accidents and or traffic violations. There should be video evidence on his dash cam?
